At 2:00 in this rig rundown video from Premier Guitar, Juan Alderete talks about his Fender stock fretless bass, saying “This is a 1970 or ’71 Fender stock fretless and I had the lines painted on it because I don’t play jazz, so I’m not at the comforts of a nice controlled room. I play rock, so it’s like this big arena are we’re about to play and it’s hard to hear so I needed that for guidance just to give me that extra edge and tuning if you know about fretless. And so, I had the lines painted on. So, usually this neck is just rosewood and it has these black dots on top. I had Eric get Eric’s guitar and paint the fret lines on it and the dots on it and I have three basses like this but it’s a stock fretless. So, it’s not wood grain, it’s not the frets pulled out but wood notches put in it.”
